A few months back, my long-time friend called me on Saturday morning and said she had to clean out her attic unexpectedly. She said she had two truckloads; one for the Goodwill and one for the dump and I could have any of it I wanted. Of course, it didn't take me long to get to her house! I had fun digging through and finding things I could use or sell at my shop. There was lots of vintage fabric, patterns and buttons.
She gave me several quilt tops (they were not on the trucks) and this is my favorite. I've always loved yo yo quilts. This top was made by her grandmother at least forty years ago. Each little circle is handmade and they are all stitched together by hand.
She also gave me a large box of loose yo yo pieces. I have been putting them on lampshades, pillows, and anything else I make.
My pictures aren't great, the colors are much prettier.
